Following graduation from State University of New York (Buffalo), Dr. Molotchnikoff joined the faculty as professor of physiology at the Département de Sciences Biologiques de l’Université de Montréal. Currently, he is also adjunct professor at the Engineering School of University of Sherbrooke. For the past several decades Professor Molotchnikoff taught courses in physiology from comparative physiology to neurosciences. Professor Molotchnikoff maintains an active laboratory and graduate research team that focuses on studying the mechanisms of the brain’s visual system and more generally investigating the processes related to sensory functions in various vertebrate species. Presently two main themes are explored: adaptation-induced plasticity, and the modifications of connectomes induced by changes in the properties of visual targets. He was awarded the Purkynĕ medal from Charles University (Prague) and Chevalier de l’Ordre de la Francophonie et du Dialogue des Cultures de l’Assemblée Parlementaire de la Francophonie. His research has been continuously funded by Canadian research agencies.
